We wrote a whole post about the 5 Best Pubs in Keswick and the Surrounding Area. However we then decided to ask our customers on our facebook page for their favourite beer soaked carpet pubs in the surrounding area and got a great response. So here is a list of pubs, not compiled by us, but our loyal customers who rigorously and regularly check all the best pubs in the county for us.


Dog and Gun

A firm favourite. The pies and goulash are a particular hit with our guests!



The Pheasant Inn

Regularly topping the best pub grub in Keswick polls, it’s selection of cask ales help make this a real winner.



The Royal Oak

Warm, cosy pub with big comfortable armchairs! Like most places in Keswick, it’s also dog friendly.



Wainwright Inn

An award winning independent pub with a wide selection of real ales.



Packhorse Inn

If you’re a fan of a good pub quiz then head down to the Packhorse. It usually runs a quiz every Wednesday, but call ahead and double check!



Horse and Farrier

Nestled at the foot of Blencathra the Horse and Farrier is great rural pub if you’re coming in along the A66 from Penrith.



Swinside Inn

A favourite with both ourselves and guests this pub feels like it’s in the heart of the Lakes. At the bottom of Cat Bells, nestled in the Newlands Valley, Swinside offers not just a great traditional pub atmosphere, but also a spectacular panormaic view of the surrounding fells.



White Horse Inn

If you want a rustic Cumberland pub; this is the place. Slightly off the beaten tourist track it’s a great place for a post Blencathra hike pint.



Kings Head

If you’ve just climbed Helvellyn then this’ll be the first pub you come to, making it the perfect place for a celebratory pint!
